But the boys and girls who might find this difficult to swallow can rest assured that there is a premium, tasty coffee that also pays producers more than the Fair Trade price, but unlike Fair Trade, isn’t a handout, it is paying what this outstanding coffee merits and there is an ideological angle for Conservatives.
At the height of the Cold War, the Contra rebels fought for political and economic freedom in Nicaragua. Their heroic efforts forced democratic elections and led to the fall of the Marxist Sandinista government. Today, a cooperative of former Contras grows an exceptional coffee high in the mountains of northern Nicaragua. Contra Café roasts this outstanding coffee and delivers it fresh to your home. In addition a portion of Contra Café revenues are donated to Lt. Col. Ollie North’s Freedom Alliance charity which provides scholarships for the children of active duty service members killed or disabled in the line of duty in Iraq.
Of course you should really drink it out of a Free Trade Coffee Mug, in the Fawkes household we won’t drink it any other way. So order the coffee online and help third world farmers who fought for freedom.
